Movement of Grain '
Heavy Toward South
Taking advantage of the approach of
low rates on grain to the gulf, the Mis
sourl Pacific Is doing an Immense busi
ness hauling wheat and corn to Now
Orleans, Tuesday the tons took out from
Omaha twenty cars and Wednesday loaded
out thlrty-flvc. It has a standing order
for hauling not less than twenty-flvo
cars dally all this and next week.
Owing to the fact that It has been secur
ing the bulk of the business to New Or-
leans and Galveston since the rate became
effective In September, the Missouri Pa
cific will make a, strenuous effort to
have the Interstate Commerco commls
slon grant another extenston until the
first of the year, at least. Tho rcnucst
will be opposed by tho Omaha-Chicago
roads, primarily because they are not
getting the business, but their allegation
wilt be that the haul to the gulf Is worth
a greater compensation than Is being re
ceived by the Missouri Pacinflc.
